When you're one of the best kayakers in the world, you have get a little creative when it comes to pushing the sport. The Catalan paddler Aniol Serrasolses has been doing just this while hunkered down in Chile for most of 2020. After landing a trick he dubbed the "Cobra Flip" last year, it became pretty clear that whatever Aniol did next was going to be nuts.

Alright, picture this: a bunch of super rad athletes from different backgrounds come together and make one big, super sport. Crazy, right? But that's exactly what the guys who thought up the X-Project did. They've basically taken windsurfing and combined it with skiing powder and then mixed it all together with snowboarding and snow-kiting too. The film features athletes Maxime Chabloz with a snow-kite and Ueli Kestenholz speed riding. Chabloz is a junior world champion in both

This particular route, Soap on a Rope (roughly a 5.11b) looms above Vivian Quarry, Wales. The route requires a rappel down to the bottom in order climb back up. Findlay takes this as the perfect chance to free solo it like the badass she is. Few people
It's no secret that Dane Jackson, Benny Marr, Bren Orton, Kalob Grady, and Isaac Hull are some of the best paddlers in the game right now and watching this, it's easy to see why. While many paddlers opt for the warm winters and waterfalls of Mexico, Chile, and Ecuador, those in search of big waves take a different path. Africa's Zambezi river is famous for its massive big water features and all time freestyle waves. When taken on by world-class playboaters like Benny Marr and Dane Jackson,
